Cinnamon Sugared Crockpot Almonds

I have a long list of recipes waiting to be eventually posted, but was so excited over this one, I decided to post it right away! I found this recipe for cinnamon sugared almonds that you can roast in your crock pot via Pinterest on this blog My picture is really bad and does not do the almonds justice. I roasted these Thanksgiving morning and was in such a hurry running around the kitchen, that this was the only quick pic I could get. These things are really addicting. I literally snacked on this things for 3 days straight, the recipe made a ton! In addition to being a super yummy snack, the aroma you get from the roasted almonds makes your whole house smell awesome! Definitely will be making these again!

You will need:

-cooking spray to coat inside of crockpot

-1 1/2 cup sugar

-3 tbsp cinnamon

-1/8 tsp kosher salt

-1 egg white

-1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

-3 1/4 cups whole raw almonds (I bought two 16oz bags in the produce section...I used one full bag and about half of the other bag)

-foil or parchment paper

*Spray inside of crock pot with cooking spray so almonds don't stick

*In a small bowl combine sugar, cinnamon, and salt and set aside

*In a large mixing bowl, whisk together egg white and vanilla

*Add almonds to egg white mixture and toss to coat well

*Now add cinnamon mixture over almonds and toss to coat well

*Put almonds in crock pot and cover and cook on high for 2 hours...stir every 30 minutes or so to keep the almonds on the sides of the crockpot from sticking.

*When almonds are finished spread out on counter over foil or parchment paper to cool

**Mine didn't make it to the cooling stage...they went straight into a bowl and were served warm
